Uganda Cranes left back Mustafa Kizza has on Wednesday night left to join Major League Soccer.
Kizza was in July confirmed as a Montreal Impact player on a two-year deal.
With the contract start date set on August 12, Montreal initially said that he will remain at his club KCCA FC on loan until December “because of the Covid19 situation.”
However, the club also added that they keep the option to call him back if the situation improves.
Mustafa joined KCCA FC in 2017. He managed five games and 12 assists from 19 games last season.
The move to MLS, a league for Cranes compatriot Mike Azira (Chicago Fire) will be a huge platform for a fast rising modern day roving left back.
The defender who has four goals and 10 games with the Cranes, missed a National team training camp in Dubai in preparation for this move to MLS.
Montreal, coached by Thierry Henry, lost 3-2 to New England on Wednesday night and will seek to bounce back when they host Inter Miami on Sunday.
The club, home for Kenyan Victor Wanyama, sit ninth in the Eastern Conference with 20 points after 18 games.
